    Steps to Starting a Middle School Club

    1. Establish your club’s purpose
      1. Develop a vision/mission statement
    2. Identify an adult supervisor/advisor
      1. If the supervisor is not a Seattle School District employee they must complete the clearance process. Please go to the volunteering page on our website under “Get Involved”
    3. Create Club Bylaws – Must submit Bylaws with initial club proposal to ASB
    4. Submit a proposal to ASB (use the ASB proposal and request form)
      1. Submit your bylaws with the proposal
      2. Submit any other relevant information (ie: notes from meeting to approve club including attendance and a calendar of possible events)
      3. If meetings take place using School Facilities permits must be requested and approved. Include space and time of meetings in proposal or submit a permit request using the link on the JAMS website here.
    5. Begin meeting consistently
      1. Make sure your permits have been approved. Submit the Club Application Cover Sheet or check the website under Permits or the ASB approvals link
      2. Always take attendance and take minutes/notes and keep them for your records
    6. Create Yearly operating agreements to include outcomes/goals for the school year
    7. Each year clubs are required to submit their calendar and budget for the following year in May of the current school year
    8. Each year in August or September clubs must submit the Returning Club Application and submit it to the ASB box in the Main Office
